The third annual Downtown Albany JazzFest Competition takes over downtown Albany, as
nine ten live music venues each play host to a different jazz band from 5-9pm on Friday, September 6.
The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to visit each location, listen to each band and cast a vote for the best performance. The winner will be determined by public vote and a designated judge (50/50%).

nine ten regional jazz bands competing for the opportunity to perform at the Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival at Jennings Landing the following day, Saturday, September 7.
